Wild turkey advice
« on: April 12, 2017, 01:31:19 PM »
I usually fillet the breast and cut into strips, batter and fry.  Leg quarters for soup. 

So the Good Lord sent me a bird today!  I have two breast fillets and two leg qtrs.  I also have a 22in. Weber kettle that Im pretty comfortable with.  Ideas?

Marinate! Can also wrap in bacon for moisture. They are lean.

On the rocks????  Serve it neat at room temp.  Only way to drink whiskey/ whisky.

If it's in a bottle, on the rocks. If it used to have a pulse, brine it with Mad Hunky Poultry Brine, then cook as you desire. Good stuff!

Do what you want with the breast on the grill but I would do the leg quarters in the crock pot. It takes along time to make those things tender. Look for a recipe for crock pot carnitas would be my recommendation for the leg quarters.

Congrats on the gobbler!! 

I inject with creole butter, season and smoke covered in bacon.  That's what I have planned for my bird!
